"Jesus is the reason for the season."
"The Connecting Place"
Currently, Adventists hold 28 fundamental beliefs that can be organized into six categories—the doctrines of God, man, salvation, the church, the Christian life and last day events. In each teaching, God is the architect, who in wisdom, grace and infinite love, is restoring a relationship with humanity that will last for eternity. We believe that God Loves God is love, power, and splendor—and God is a mystery. His ways are far beyond us, but He still reaches out to us. God is infinite yet intimate, three yet one, all-knowing yet all-forgiving.
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. Psalm 119:105
LIVING LIFE WITH "HYGGE": I was listening to National Public Radio one day while driving home from work when I heard a report on the happiest place in the world. Like most people, I want to be happy and live a life full of joy. The segment caught my attention. March 20 was designated International Day of Happiness, and according to the United Nations' World Happiness Report 2016 Update, the happiest place in the world for several years was not an island in the Caribbean having constant sunshine and pristine beaches of white sand. Much to my surprise, the happiest place was Denmark. A place where there is less sunshine, where it rains 50 percent of the year, and has cold winters with lots of snow!. This U.N. report ranked 156 countries around the world and Denmark was at the top of the list (Norway has surged ahead in 2017). Read Article

I read the email with interest, and responded with my views on the subject. To prove his point, he stated what Jesus said in Matthew 5:48 “Be ye perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect,” and he also referenced the fact that the Bible says that Job was perfect (Job 1:1), and that Noah was perfect. (Genesis 6:9). My friend’s email gave me a wonderful opportunity to show the importance of the need to have a sound Bible teacher. As you are reading this article, the issue of perfection, and having sinless flesh is being discussed in many circles throughout our conference. So, let us begin by conversing about the references of perfection made with regard to Job, and Noah. Read story
